rambly thoughts

Am I making this post on LJ instead of tumblr just because my journal is so dead lately? What? Madness! Except yeah, I totally am.

So I spent last Valentine's watching Voyager's "Blood Fever" and this year I watched Roswell's "Heatwave." Maybe next year I'll watch a steamy episode devoid of aliens.

Speaking of Roswell, I'm rewatching it and it never fails to get to me. I love seeing the destined-to-be-together Max and Liz, and watching Maria and Michael fall for each other, and part of me cries every time Alex is on screen. My biggest problem though? Eventually all my Roswell thoughts come around to that episode where future!Max shows up. I will never get over that image of Liz dancing alone on her roof. But I am hoping that watching the whole series through in order in a short amount of time will help get me past that image to the church. Of course then I think about her dad sitting at the counter with the journal....

I'm also rewatching Gargoyles, which is basically one of the best things ever. A doomed otp, Shakespeare references (the weird sisters show up. A lot), magic and science working together and apart, a cast full of Star Trek alums, and probably the most diverse set of characters I have ever seen in anything in my life.

DW thoughts

I will not complain. I will not complain. I will not complain.

Am I the only one who ships Clara/Captain Latimer? Yes? Okay then.

"The green lady, she said you were the savior of worlds once. Are you going to save this one?" "If I do, will you come away with me?"

And it was at that point that I wanted this to be a very different story. I suddenly wanted Clara to say yes and go with him and about halfway through the season it would come out that she didn't really do it for the adventure (though of course that's fun and it made it easier), she did it because she thought that was the price. Her for the world. The Doctor gets her and the world gets to live. The dragon gets the princess and the kingdom is spared. Seeing the Doctor angst about being an unintentional monster would've been great.

Of course that didn't happen and Clara's a big, giant mystery and honestly I'm tired of it already.

Okay, I complained a little but I promise that wasn't my point. Really I just wanted to get those earlier thoughts out.

ship questions

I know I've done something like this before but I'm super blocked on fic bored so I stole this from tumblr (and altered it slightly, mostly for clarity).

Pick 10 ships without reading the questions, then answer.

  1. Bruce Wayne/Selina Kyle
  2. Klaus/Caroline Forbes

Days of Man

I finally wrote a new TVD fic! Woo!

Title: Days of Man
Canon: Vampire Diaries
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Warnings: I haven't actually seen the last three episodes so ... yeah
Rating: T
Wordcount: chapter 1: 2400+ // the entire story: 14500+
Characters/Pairings: Klaus/Caroline
Notes: This fic killed me. It wouldn't let me stop until I'd finished and then, somewhere around the climax, it revealed to me that it allowed for a companion story featuring one of my other TVD ships. It's mean and cruel and I'm super proud of it.

Summary: Klaus estimates he has less than a week before his enemies hear of his new-found mortality and seek him out to end his life, but the gift of spending all his remaining time alone with Caroline certainly softens the blow.



First, I'm reading Catching Fire despite being underwhelmed by THG and omg this book is amazing.

And now to the point of this post. Stolen from fantasticjackie because I'm bored and it looked like fun.

Pick 15 of your ships and write down a quote for each of them. Have your f-list guess the ships without using Google/IMDB.

new flist format

LJ's planning on changing everyone's friends page format to something similar to the new comment pages, which I know a lot of people have serious problems with. Here's the info on it and how to inform LJ of how unhappy you are with this decision.

a (literal) handful of political icons

Just a quick note: you probably disagree with my politics. Given that this is the internet that statement alone should give you some idea of where I stand so if you don't like it or have no idea what that means but think you might not like me all of a sudden if you look below the cut, please do not look below the cut. It's that easy to live in ignorance of my political beliefs.
